Righteous Indignation of the Left

Suffolk University in Boston has come up with a new poll that indicates that Fox News Channel is by far the most trusted news source to no one's surprise - well, that is no one but the Soros' puppet progressives at outfits like Media Matters.

The poll shows that FNC is trusted by 28% of the public, followed by CNN at 18%, NBC at 10%, MSNBC at 7%, and the other two network news at 6% each.

This is no surprise to those of us who live their lives with their eyes and minds open.  During the 2008 election season, at least two studies - one by Pew Research Center and the other by CMPA - showed clearly that Fox was the most balanced and unbiased source of election coverage. 

I would agree with critics who might say that Fox leans to the conservative side but that is beyond the issue at hand.  The ideological bend of the network is irrelevant as long as they report the news fairly.  That, unfortunately, is not the case as far as other networks are concerned.  Besides, I do not hear those progressive critics complaining about MSNBC or any other network who are clearly biased in their reporting.  How biased?  Enough to cover up for and help get a radical Chicago community organizer with enough skeletons in his closet to make any cemetery jealous elected President of the United States.

The reaction to the poll has been predictably knee-jerk from the left.  Media Matters Executive V.P. Ari Rabin-Havt says "the public's trust in Fox is disturbing".  He also says the poll reveals that "Fox News viewers trust the information that Fox gives them." 

What a shock!  A network who can be believed in?  I mean what is going on here?  We can't have that now, can we?  It is downright disturbing, to borrow Mr. Havt's phraseology.

In a more serious and somber tone, this is the sad state of the American left today.  It is indicative of their righteous indignation and elitist view of just who are the ones in the "know". The rest of us who believe in the individual over the collective are simply unwashed masses who need to be told what to think. 

Very sad, indeed!

I think "what comes as no surprise" is the fact that those on the left get their news from a wider variety of sources. We're out and about and not planted in front of the TeeVee being told what to think all day long by an admittedly biased corporation.

Nice try, though. But, then, I suppose if you were actually a thought-provoking writer, you'd have more blog comments, wouldn't you.

"Wider variety of sources"? I needed the laugh. Thanks.
I guess that is why my progressive friends are so clueless about what goes on in this county!
Mention things like Pigford, and they think you are talking about a farm in Iowa or something. Pathetic.

Correct. A wider variety of sources.

And thanks for mentioning Pigford. I needed the laugh.

It is sad commentary on progressives when you can only laugh at a 2+ billion fraud that was pushed through with the president's blessing.

You want scandals and willful violations of the constitution (ignoring courts and the congress), I've got more than a dozen for you.
